DIRECTOR’S SPOTLIGHT – Nancy Milliken
We are enormously grateful to Gordon and Betty Moore for their belief in UCSF and the National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health. Their transformative gift for the Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital is catalyzing progress in innovative, women-centered care based upon research evidence, compassionate care and shared decision making.
ADVANCING WOMEN’S HEALTHCARE
Imagine a future in which every doctor who cares for you understands your unique female biology and values your preferences.
Imagine a future in which health care providers work in teams and share information with each other -- and you -- via the internet.
Imagine a brand new state of the art hospital in San Francisco devoted entirely to providing women a lifetime of reproductive health, where a woman can have a baby in a birthing center, receive the latest in breast cancer care, uterine fibroid treatment or incontinence all in a woman-centered environment.
That future is closer than you think thanks to the vision of lifelong women's healthcare advocate and expert Dr. Nancy Milliken. The Women's Specialty Hospital is part of a new $1.6 billion UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay that broke ground in October 2010.
